Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes for Electrical Engineering

The primary goal of the Electrical Engineering (ELEC) Program is to produce graduates who will successfully practice electrical engineering in a broad range of endeavors. Accomplishing this goal is demonstrated through achievement of the following program educational objectives:

  • PEO#1: Graduates of the ELEC Program demonstrate technical proficiency in the practice of electrical engineering.
  • PEO#2: Graduates of the ELEC Program will be recognized as effective communicators, in a variety of communication modes, to a variety of audiences, both technical and nontechnical.
  • PEO#3: Graduates of the ELEC Program will contribute to the success of their various enterprises through effective work in teams comprising individuals from multiple engineering, technical, and non-technical backgrounds.
  • PEO#4: Graduates of the ELEC Program expand their knowledge and skills through lifelong scientific inquiry and learning. 
  • PEO#5: Graduates of the ELEC Program are responsible citizens characterized by high standards of ethics and professionalism.

Program Educational Objectives for Computer Engineering
